    9 years in NJ. You do not qualify on welfare anyway. You are required to work 35 hours a week and collect child support both children.

    • In most places right now, at LEAST 3-5 years IF they are accepting applications at all.

    • A few years like between 5 and 10 depending on the number of others on the waitlist. Being pregnant, having a child does not make you get a voucher any faster than anyone else.

    • Not even people that work in the Section 8 office can answer that. There is no set time frame & it is IMPOSSIBLE to estimate. All any one (even their own staff) can give you is a general ball park & that would only be a guess. In general it can take months to years to even get on a waiting list in some areas. FYI: College students typically do not qualify.
